sure take to number one wire and plug out turn the engine over by hand with a breaker bar and socket till your finger is forced out of the hole.mark it on your dizzie and do it again to double check..make sure your not 180 out.then place your cap back on and start from teh number one wire counter clock ways with that firing order and u should have it

Yep, it fired up, You guys are awesome......
no smoke or nothin, idles fine once its warmed up, when you give it some gas it sputters & sounds like its missing. I cleaned & gapped the plugs, made sure all the wires were on all the way, bumped the timing around a little. Idles fine, sputters when you hit the gas HuhHuh plug wires look ok but will replace anyway, rotor new, cap looks nice & clean.HuhHuh? Is this electronic ignition& do I need the vacuum advance or cap em? or anything else you can think of to do??
